For Microsoft, its presence at the Consumer Electronics Show is not a priority it seems, but people from the company get to show up anyway. Among the many attendees who Endgadget had the opportunity to talk to was Marc Whitten from Xbox. During his presence at CES today, Whitten shared his (“really thrilled”) feelings about the launch of the Xbox One, but also mentioned an update to come to make consumers happy.
“The feedback we’ve gotten is pretty valid; some of the social stuff is hidden or harder to use than it was on the Xbox 360. So you’re gonna see us come out with an update where, well, we’re going to fix those things. As a person who’s been pretty involved in building Xbox Live for the last decade, I take it pretty seriously when people say it’s harder to get into a party, and the defaults aren’t right, and I don’t like the model. So what I’m trying to do with the team is kind of theme some stuff up. Let’s take an update and really go through a big list of what we’re hearing from customers, what we know is broken with the architecture, areas that we want to improve or complete. I think that’s a theme you’ll really see us push on — that Live experience.”
Besides the expected big updates, the company will provide faster and smaller updates for the Xbox One, as well as more apps. About the game streaming feature on the Xbox One, Whitten mentioned it may take a bit more time. However, game streaming is expected to arrive in the first half of the year, before E3.
